Forum: GratefulDead Subject: GOOD LOVIN':Re: neat little show

yeah this is a cool tape. the innocent banter in the beginning is really choice...and while the story starts to show serious signs of hyperbole around the time the "two hotties" show up i like the second review....at the time the banter that is so humorous NOW, back then it was just some joker hippy dudes messing around, trying the patience of the same reviewer.

ANYWAY, RE: JERRY ON VOCALS for Good Lovin:

the band played the song one time in 1966-05-19, a speed fueled psychedelic romp, with some hoe-down type pickin from jerry, and PIG ON VOCALS plus portable church organ!

the song then disappears only to resurface at this free show of 1969-05-07 with jerry on vocals, and the church organ is replaced by something SLIGHTLY more respectable sounding and they play at a slightly more reasonable, soulful tempo.

jerry stays on lead vocals for the next 3 performances, 1969/8-29, 9-06, and 9-29. the song was played every night of the winterland run, 10/24-26, but no recordings of good lovin circulate (?)

ON NOVEMBER 1, 1969 PIG TOOK OVER GOOD LOVIN for good and i believe the arrangement of the song is solidified: about a 2 minute run through of the verse and chorus leads into a > drum solo > and then they come back in and the jam opens up

[...]PIG ON VOX

over the course of 1970 the song continued to develop and open up considerably until it was a setpiece powerhouse of a song by the fall, check out 1970, 9-18 at the fillmore east, and then the outstanding version of OCTOBER 24, 1970, Kiel Opera House, St Louis MO.

st louis lovin

on through 1971 good lovin CONTINUED TO GAIN MOMENTUM as pig more and more took charge and his long raps flowered. the Dillon Gym concert of 4-17 1971 is well known for pigs rap....but there were other AMAZING versions. i have proselytized the winterland closing of 1971-07-02 many times, but the version from the Fox Theatre 12-10-71, in ST LOUIS AGAIN>>>>?

hot show with keith AND pig

GOOD LOVIN WAS PLAYED: 24 times, 1969; 67, 1970; 24, 1971; and 19 times in 1972 and teh retired only to be brought back as an unfortunate bob-rock star vehicle in 76/77. it was never the same.

in 1971 and 72 good lovin was usually stretched out well past the 15 minute mark and represented most fully the dead's amazing ability to take very mundane, simple material and use it as a launch pad for all manner of musical/emotional exploration -- cerebral and visceral. while LOVELIGHT was purely a PIG vehicle, GOOD LOVIN MOST SUCCESSFULLY mixed the raw, naked HUMAN element that pig brought and the metaphysical quest that seemed to power the instrumentalists through their early jams, 69-72.

the last great GL?, into CAUTION w/who do you love jam

He Lives ... hate to come across as an neophyte in things tech, but how do you create those links; i mean, how do you create them with the naming convention of your choice?

glad you asked

i recently let my computer update SAFARI and my "MAKE LINK" button disappeared :(

go to the forum FAQs, it explains how to make clickable links

oh, it's hard to do, it keeps making my explanation into a link!

got it?

try this

it;s the same as the "how to make a hyperlink" there, but, you put in a title be tween the last close arrow before the last "open" arrow

...."URL">name of link.....?????<<<<<<

I'll say, Arb. There is something startling about the way "he" works around here...First off, I don't even know how to spell his "handle." Second, he is always providing links and making connections that I hadn't begun to think of (funny, but that is what I THOUGHT you were getting at in your message, Arb; "connections" in the etheral sense rather than web-esque).

Will have to find these gems with Jerry singing...

hey will...i really like these early "motown" jams, so i'll take any opportunity to research them etc...

i think the 3 or 4 instances i hit upon above are the only jerry on lead vox GLs...BUT for some reason, i think there might be one more from 70-72, like at a show with no pig?

(BTW, He Live's is like, the opposite of He's Gone, i suppose it could have been He's Alive, but i liked the weird apostrophe placement so....there you go..."HE" is whoever you want i guess, JERRY, PIG, NEAL CASSADY or perhaps just "IT" personified)

Thanks, man; all I can say is that along with Arb, Ashes, Tiger, BD, and a host of others, you are one of the reasons I keep making the effort hereabouts.

Great discussion of Good Lovin'!
Interesting that spring '71 & spring '72 were the peaks for this jam - but those are the months that have been pulled from the Archive -
Nonetheless, a Good Lovin' marathon! -

I love the 5/7/69 show....one of the few shows where Me & My Uncle is a surprising standout! Have to wonder if there was a first half of Smokestack Lightning that got lost in the cut....
And 5/6/70 is, of course, heavenly.
